Data Engineer, Data Platform


Qventus is looking for a Data Engineer to help build the next generation of our data ecosystem as part of our Data Platform team.


The Company

Did you know there is over $1 trillion of waste every year in healthcare? One of the biggest contributors to the staggering amount of waste is inefficient operations. If you’ve ever spent hours waiting in the ER; if a hospitalized family member experienced a delayed discharge; if you’ve had to schedule a surgical procedure far into the future due to lack of available Operating Room time — then you understand the kinds of problems we solve.

Our mission is to simplify how healthcare operates.  We partner with health systems to automate care operations — all of the operational activities involved in delivering care, from discharge planning, to OR access, to patient flow, and more. Our software combines AI, machine learning, and behavioral science to power best-practice solutions for settings across the hospital and system. Solving those problems not only benefits patients, but it also eases the burden on physicians and nurses, and drives significant economic value for hospitals as well.

We work with leading health systems, academic medical centers, and community hospitals across the country.  We’ve raised over $95M in funding from some of healthcare’s leading investors, including Thomas H. Lee Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, Norwest Ventures Partners, Mayfield Fund, and more. We’ve also been recognized by Fast Company’s 2022 World Changing Ideas Awards, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, CB Insights, and more.

Are you interested in simplifying how healthcare operates? Then join our amazing, mission-driven team and help health systems discover world-class operations that are essential to delivering world-class care.

The Role

Our services support both internal & external decision making from product development and client insights to ultimately supporting the development and operationalization of our Healthcare AI to improve the lives of patients and doctors across the country.

As a Data Engineer II, you will build and maintain significant components of the Qventus data architecture for our Periop solution. You will be comfortable working closely with both core data users on analytics and data science and backend partners to design, build, and deploy comprehensive data pipelines in support of internal and external data solutions - from data requirement & quality definitions, to pipeline design, to feature engineering within the healthcare space (and HIPAA restrictions). You will be motivated and excited to have an impact on the team and in the company and to improve the quality of healthcare operations.
